MuchMusic cancels award show

Toronto - MuchMusic Vice President David Kines today announced that The 2001 MuchMusic Video Awards - slated to air live on September 23rd - will be cancelled in the wake of Tuesday's terrorist action in the U.S.

"It is a time of uncertainty, a time to mourn, and to collect our thoughts and prayers. Out of respect for the victims and their families, MuchMusic has chosen to cancel this, the 12th edition of the annual event - and return in September 2002," said Kines.
